Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good for the price. Got 0.5A inn strong sunlight. Great build quality. A controller circuit is stabilizing the voltage at 5.25V. Many adapters. I like that it's easy to open the casing of the solar panel.
Cons:
The cable from the board on the solar panels had the polarity inverted, so I needed to cut open the cable from the board and switch the red and black wires(change plus and minus). After that it worked flawlessly.
Other:
Best to have an external battery to use with it.
Bottomline:
If you are going to a place without power this is nice to have.
